1989 All Stars - Oakland Athletics

Johnny Bench - 1972 World Series

1972 World Series: Oakland is nursing a small lead over the heavily-favored Reds. It is the ninth inning and a drive is hit to deep left. Rudi leaps against the wall and catches the ball. This is one of the most unforgettable plays in Oakland History as they would go on to win the series against the Big Red Machine.
